Anybody know where I can get a termoscud in the states online?

And if anybody has one, can you tell if the straps or attachments put any scratches on the scooter?

I believe this stays attached to your scooter while a skirt is on the rider.

Their chart that is supposed to tell what model fits your scooter doesn't work. I was wondering if there is anybody else.

I did a search here on MV, here are the results for Termoscud. There was a lenghtly thread on these some time ago. Most people liked them and if I remember right, they said there was no marking of the paint from the clips.

I ordered mine directly from Tucano's website last year. Love it. And had no issues with the straps/paint.

The Scooter Skirt would be more convenient as you take it off after every ride, but I like the toasty warmth that the Tucano captures from the heat of the scooter.

Do you happen to know what model you purchased? The chart doesn't work and they're about 35 models to choose from.

Ifixjets, thanks for doing the search and posting the link. There've been numerous discussions here on MV about there. I did a group with through wheelup.it a while back [flagged by Homeland Security's customs watchdogs as a commercial venture].

I like the thick pile lining a lot. Very cozy. No one in my group of several scooter types had a problem with the size chart.

I do appreciate the quick convenience of the NoCal-made Scooter Skirt, and they're beautifully made. If I didn't have the Termoscud, I'd consider it.

i have the bagster brand one that attaches like the termoscud one and it's also lined with a thick berber fleece. it's super warm and waterproof and it doesn't flap around at higher speeds. i can roll and tie it up when i don't need it so i don't have to worry about storing it somewhere.

ten's of thousands of french,belgian,italian and of course the English have no problem getting their feet out from under. The sides don't go all the way down and allow you to easily put your feet down like normal.

Tucano's Termoscuds are a 'must-have' in all italian northern towns and are very appreciated by scooterists and bikers. My friends from Milan use it in everyday heavy traffic situations and told me they have no problems. They are perfectly fit for urban situations, where you need to start-stop frequently and maybe get to work appropriately dressed and clean in bad weather days.
Unfortunately, thieves seem to appreciate it very much, as well, and Termoscuds are now sold in Italy with security locks and 1 year anti-theft Assurance

Since I do not deal with Milan traffic and thieves, I ride well with antirain trousers in very bad winter weather

I did go over to the dark side. It's been interesting... I loved each of my scooters, but wanted the connection to the engine that shifting gears brings, wanted to learn something new while I was still young enough to do it, and needed to get off the maxi-scoot in order to save my lower back.

The V-strom is just an amazing bike -- fast, super flickable for a motorcycle, great mileage, nice high (adult) seating position -- a joy to own and ride.

I do have, however, a serious jones for a Moto Guzzi...

PS: Termoscud's are great: well-designed, well-made... a ton of features at a small price.

Here was an email I got back from then after asking some questions about which product would work for the GTS.

Dear Mr. XXXX,
the correct codes are R154 for the termoscud and R323 for the hand grip cover.
Where do you write from? When I know your country I can send you a quotation + DHL cost or address to our distributor in your place of origin.
With regard to the link, it doesn't work because we have updated our web-site. Visit ourwebsite www.tucanourbano.com , select termoscud and choose your scooter in order to have the right Termoscud.
Awaiting for your reply,
Best regards
Patrizia Milani

The material is pretty stiff, so it can just sit there on your lap, or it has an apron like front that you pull up onto your chest and clip the strap around your neck for extra warmth.

It's a loose apron syle loop. By that time there would be any danger of that decapitating you (outrageously unlikely) you were dead already.

I've said it before and I'll say it again .... These things rock!

They do "just kinda stay there" when your riding along.

I have never used the neck strap. I never felt the need to. It's just a small piece of elastic with a Velcro safety release as an added safety measure.

You just slide into the scoot and the friction from the "fur" lining against your clothes, the pressure from the wind and the stiffness of the material/air tubes make it all work nicely.

The ONLY thing with these is that they don't go on and off quick or easy. They also don't roll up that great on the occasional warm day when you don't want to use it. Oh one more thing, the key hole is a pain in the ass till you get used to it.

Since I ride all winter when safe (even got caught in a few snow squalls last year) I now have also have a Scoot Skirt that I was lucky enough to win at a rally. I will be using the Scooter Skirt once it starts getting chilly till winter sets in. That way the warm days I don't have anything in the way. I'll mount the Termoscud for dead winter. Then I'll use the Scooter Skirt again at the end of winter for the occasional cooler days once warm.

So there is a use for BOTH products if you can swing it.

The 'neck strap' is a quick release convenience strap-- no danger of decapitation 8) -- I rarely use it. The material is stiff enough that you can place the bib across your chest if you want to and it just stays put.

The inflatable reservoirs on either side keep it from flapping, and also keep your feet unencumbered. No danger of tangling!

It feels comforting and cozy in cold weather, and it's very warm.

Ciao,

Thay are lined with sheepskin and they trap in the heat from the engine to keep you nice and cozy in non troical Europe.

Okay, but what if it's NOT for personal use? I'm sure there's enough interest here for a stateside group order. If someone had a business licence and ordered, say 10, would homeland security show up at your door and throw your ass in Guantanamo?

I'm certainly interested in ordering one for myself anyway. But what's to stop me from ordering one for each of my 5 scooters? And then using the rest as Christmas gifts?

If it's not for personal use you pay extra tax. And yes you can lie.

Scooterrific: You don't need to change water into wine, you've got great wines in Australia, for instance Rosemount Shiraz!

Thanks for the suggestion about the Scooter Skirt. It might trap hot air from the radiator of your watercooled scooters, very clever, like the heating in the VW Bugs.

I guess I need to get a good rainsuit then! Any suggestions?
